A review by MovieGuys

Written by MovieGuys on April 1, 2019

When it first hit the screen I loved this show. It's rather bare knuckle, vigilante grittiness really broke the candy covered shell, that encases so many comic book hero's.

Sadly in spite of strong stories and mature characterizations for me this show slowly started a downward spiral, gradually exchanging its originality for mainstream complacency.

What really ruined things, in my view, was the migration of the character from a kind of anti hero to a politician. As if this wasn't bad enough, a thread of brittle and downright tiresome, lecturing political correctness crept in too.

The... read the rest.

It has been a great 8 year journey with this show. When I first began watching season 1, I had my skepticism, but halfway through it it got more interesting, and over the years it became...something else!

From heart stomping action to a great cast - especially when it featured nearly all the main cast from the Spartacus series! And even epic crossovers This show will be missed.

MobieGuys summed it up beautifully: https://www.themoviedb.org/review/5ca169649251411a18088d77

Seasons 1 to 4 were a solid 9 out of 10... and each season after that was worse. I didn't even watch season 8. Couldn't bring myself to do it

IF you only watch the first few seasons it's pretty good. It actually starts off decent enough, and had they kept on that track I'd give it 10 stars.

But, unfortunately, it spiraled into CW trash pretty fast and what was once a decent and gritty superhero show ala Grell, it quickly turned into Smallville meets The Dating Game.

As the show progresses, it becomes more and more muted, more and more toned down, and the gritty darkness that made it good fun turned into shallow CWness.

Watch the first few seasons, and then tune out.
